Sometimes fashion has us feeling so conflicted. How much is too much red? Generally, it’s best to take our color cues from nature. This means using our favorite power color in meaningful doses. Then we see a smashing head-to-toe take on “painting the town” and we’re ready to throw caution to the wind! Take a look and see how heavy-handed you can get with the holiday hue.

Romance, Olé!

As always, our favorite passion hue is best done head-to-toe as a dress.  Red dresses in lace or with crochet eyelet details are dearest to our hearts.  Cuba has been the vacation destination of choice these days. Think  of Spanish lovers and Spanish roses for inspiration!  We love this Vintage Button Through TiMo dress because the embroidery is so pretty!  Little details in all the right places.

Comment Dites-Vous..

The only thing better than a sick graphic tee is a charming French-inspired sweater.  Pick your phrase of choice and dare to be bashful in a red knit.  We fell in love with lettering last month and it looks good in any language!  How much do you love this Vicky Crew Have a Nice Day sweater?  The cashmere/wool blend and boyfriend fit makes it a total keeper.  We especially love this in coy, school girl style.
